I’ve compiled a list of the top 25 universities according to US News & World Report, and which MOOC Provider you can find their courses on, using the data from curricu.me.
|Yale||Coursera & Yale Open Learning|
|University fo Chicago||Coursera|
|California Institute of Technology||Coursera|
|Washington University in St Louis||Semester Online*|
|Rice||Coursera & EdX|
|University of Notre Dame||Semester Online|
|Emory University||Coursera & Semester Online|
|University of California – Berkeley||EdX|
|Carnegie Mellon||Open Learning Initiative|
|University of California – Los Angeles||UCLAExtension|
|University of Southern California||n/a|
*Semester Online is a paid, for-credit service with an application process, so it does not qualify as a traditional MOOC
Some quick observations:
– University of Southern California is the only holdout on this list.
– It really speaks to the power of Coursera and EdX. There are some young providers like Canvas or FutureLearn who will need to find a niche or have a really great value proposition in order to be successful in this market.
– It also speaks to the power of MOOCs. 24 of the top 25 universities offer MOOCs or MOOC-like courses.
